Let's think about where you are now by looking at our success criteria. One thing is using citations to support your arguments.
Yah. I need to work on that.
Okay, great. That can be one of your learning goals. Can you think of a way to state that? It's something that you want to work towards achieving.
Sounds good. Write it down so you can look at it as you begin your next assignment.
How about, "I will properly use citations to support my arguments."
Looks good! That tells you where you're going. Now you need to think about how you're getting there.
How about you write down a few things you'll need to do to improve. You might find some ideas in the comments I wrote on your last paper. Then check these as you write your next paper and rate yourself.
Learning goal: I will properly use citations to support my arguments.How am I doing?Did I always try to find the best citation to prove my point?1 2 3 4Did I use it effectively to support my point? 1 2 3 4
How should I do that?
Now you need an action plan! If you'd like, I can help you to brainstorm some ways to improve.
That would be great!
The next week...
How is your self-assessment going?
Well, I've rated my citation use. I'm doing a lot better!
You can continue to set goals to meet other success criteria!
And I can use these self-assessment skills in my other classes too--and into post-secondary studies! Yay!
